  • A space that is wonderful to learn about native species and preserve them, to enjoy with the family of an excellent climate sunny. The rental option there are carts to carry to the more guys and there is a souvenir shop. It has restaurants inside the Park. Recommend to the entrance of the Aquarium there are fish that are left to cherish, it is a very nice experience for the more guys

  • If you go, purchase the regular ticket and buy lunch inside. The hot dog is not good. It is still a zoo. Can be depressing to see all those caged animals :(
  • A really nice zoo, especially for what I was expecting. On par with US zoos. Not too exciting, just like any other zoo. It was cool seeing the Colombian native flora and fauna. A lot of the enclosures (lion, bear, Bengal tiger could have been much bigger. Employees and guards were very nice. Lots of taxis to grab outside the entrance.
  • Plenty of animals, beautiful landscape and decorations. It can take around 2 to 3 hours to see it all. It's really worthwhile if you visit Cali.
  • Rich in species and creatively organised. Great crowd
  • Beautiful. A true must-visit in Cali. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes (it is a bit big). They have a good snack and food offer in the zoo. Also, ask about special evening events. After you finish here, walk along the riverside to La Tertulia Church.
